PORSCHE has had a long and varied history in motorsports, spanning 75 years and hundreds of racing competitions across different disciplines. 

It’s also been heavily featured in just about every racing game with licensed vehicles to release in the last 30 years, making a pretty indelible mark on the games industry as a whole. 

Six console designs have been created to celebrate Porsche’s 75-year motorsports history

Porsche vehicles have appeared in multiple Forza games, including the recent Forza Horizon 5, and the upcoming Forza Motorsport, which is set to launch on Xbox on October 10.

It’s no surprise then that Xbox and Porsche have teamed up to create a series of extremely limited Porsche-themed Xbox Series X consoles. 

There are 6 designs for the consoles, and only 75 special edition consoles will ever be made — once the promotion is over, these are likely never coming back. 

The designs are based on liveries that Porsche cars have used in one of the most iconic motorsports events ever, the 24h of Le Mans. 

The endurance race is considered part of the Triple Crown, one of the most prestigious achievements in racing, alongside the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix and the Indy 500. 

Each of the consoles is adorned with an iconic design, and comes with a matching controller to complete the set. 

The six designs are based on the following liveries: 

  • Salzburg (1970)
  • “Hippie” (1970)
  • “Pink Pig” (1971)
  • Porsche Racing Edition (1978)
  • 911 GT1 (1998)
  • 75th Anniversary / Porsche 963 (2023)

Xbox and Porsche fans who are interested in getting their hands on one of these rare and unique console bundles will have to compete against likely thousands of others, but thankfully it’s pretty easy to enter. 

Simply visit the official competition website, enter your name, country and email address, tick the box confirming you’re over 18, and you’re good to go. 

The competition is only open to residents of the UK, Germany, and US, so it’s quite a selective group of people who can even enter, let alone win. 

Still, given how rare these consoles will be, many will be rushing to enter as quickly as possible and score themselves a part of Porsche and Xbox history.
